Romo thinks Warner is a Hall of Famer
By Calvin Watkins
The retirement of Kurt Warner on Friday brought out all sorts of questions regarding his Hall of Fame status.
In 124 regular-season games, he completed 65.5 percent of his passes for 32,344 yards and 208 touchdowns for three NFL teams. Warner and Fran Tarkenton are the only NFL quarterbacks to throw for 100 touchdowns and 14,000 yards for two teams. Warner also is a two-time MVP.
"He has had an incredible career, he has nothing to prove," Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said Friday. "He has been a great ambassador to the game and a great player. We have been lucky and fortunate enough to be able to watch him and be around him."
As far as reaching Canton, Romo believes Warner should get in.
"It speaks for itself, I think," Romo said. "He played in three Super Bowls, won one, MVP, what else do you want to have in a Hall of Famer?"
